South West, Unit...
We are daring to fly to visit my parents with our 7month old twins. I am really concerned that the airline might lose some connecting bits of our double buggy and that we are stuffed at the other end… this is why I made a buggy travel bag. The ones I found online wouldn’t have fit the two seats and/or had the wrong shape. I got this cute “The World” PVC and matching fabric from a department store – very fitting for a travel bag. I first made the PVC outer bag and hand-stitched the fabric inner bag into it at the zip. It is big enough to fit the rain covers as well. If we never travel by air again with the little ones while they need the buggy, they will have a gigantic toy storage/hide and seek prop.
Not sure I would want to work with PVC again for such a huge project as the sheer bulk and rigidity of the fabric was a little much to handle… well, it made my 40year old machine pack up. I finally had an excuse to get a brand new one – bonus, sort of. As all my projects, this isn’t perfect, but I am quite happy the way it turned out and am fairly certain it will do the job. No problems identifying it on the baggage belt at the other end either.
